When an overconfident dude tells a woman to shush up ... here’s what that really means.

Why are men telling women how women should feel about rape? Why are 80% of opinion pieces written by dudes? Why are guys retweeted twice as often as women?

When an overconfident dude tells a woman to shush up ... here’s what that really means.

Here's why.

Mansplain? What kind of word is mansplain?!

Let's define it.



"Even though he knew she had an advanced degree in neuroscience, he felt the need to mansplain 'There are molecules in the brain called neurotransmitters.'"*

What does mansplaining look like in the real world?

Female doctors can't treat their patients as well.


Female students can't participate as much.

144%!?!?

We just don't see women's opinions as often as men's. The information marketplace literally buys more men's opinions.

I propose a way to put and end to mansplaining.

It's a concept called...

"Even though they were very interested in having their opinion be considered about neuroscience, they took into account that others probably felt the same way and maybe had interesting things to say. So they waited, listened, and were a decent human."

I don't know about you, but I'm ready for a new age of being a decent human. You in?

When a pet is admitted to a shelter it can be a traumatizing experience. Many are afraid of their new surroundings and are far from comfortable showing off their unique personalities. The problem is that's when many of them have their photos taken to appear in online searches.

Chewy, the pet retailer who has dedicated themselves to supporting shelters and rescues throughout the country, recognized the important work of a couple in Tampa, FL who have been taking professional photos of shelter pets to help get them adopted.

"If it's a photo of a scared animal, most people, subconsciously or even consciously, are going to skip over it," pet photographer Adam Goldberg says. "They can't visualize that dog in their home."

Adam realized the importance of quality shelter photos while working as a social media specialist for the Humane Society of Broward County in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

"The photos were taken top-down so you couldn't see the size of the pet, and the flash would create these red eyes," he recalls. "Sometimes [volunteers] would shoot the photos through the chain-link fences."

That's why Adam and his wife, Mary, have spent much of their free time over the past five years photographing over 1,200 shelter animals to show off their unique personalities to potential adoptive families. The Goldbergs' wonderful work was recently profiled by Chewy in the video above entitled, "A Day in the Life of a Shelter Pet Photographer."

Vanna White appeared on "The Price Is Right" in 1980.

Vanna White has been a household name in the United States for decades, which is kind of hilarious when you consider how she gained her fame and fortune. Since 1982, the former model and actress has made millions walking back and forth turning letters (and later simply touching them—yay technology) on the game show "Wheel of Fortune."

That's it. Walking back and forth in a pretty evening gown, flipping letters and clapping for contestants. More on that job in a minute…

As a member of Gen X, television game shows like "Wheel of Fortune" and "The Price is Right" send me straight back to my childhood. Watching this clip from 1980 of Vanna White competing on "The Price is Right" two years before she started turning letters on "Wheel of Fortune" is like stepping into a time machine. Bob Barker's voice, the theme music, the sound effects—I swear I'm home from school sick, lying on the ugly flowered couch with my mom checking my forehead and bringing me Tang.

This video has it all: the early '80s hairstyles, a fresh-faced Vanna White and Bob Barker's casual sexism that would never in a million years fly today.
